My name is Carolyn. I grew up wanting goldfish and when I was 12 my mom got me a 10 gallon tank. The staff at my local pet store said I could keep ten comets in that tank at a time. Naturally they all died. I did that three times, killed 30 fish. Then gave up for years. I grew up, and researched and now I am a proud goldfish keeper, doing my best to educate my friends and family. I've been an aquatics specialist and have kept both cold and warm water fish. I currently own a 90 gallon tank and a 90 gallon pond, a 55g, 45g, 15g, 10g and a 5g. Not all are in use.
